Meet Janine Mendenhall

By day, Janine Mendenhall teaches English and is a high school counselor. By night, when normal people are asleep, she writes or watches historical Janine Mendenhall authorromance movies like Pride and Prejudice and claims that’s “research”.

At eight, Janine got hooked on “happily ever after” while watching Beauty and the Beast starring George C. Scott. Visit her at, and you’ll find the exact scene she held in her mind’s eye for thirty-nine years until she recently located it on YouTube.

Her husband, Tom, is a computer guru. He and their five tech savvy children attempt to help Janine get connected to the 21st Century when she’s on break from writing Never Past Hope* and Perseverance,* the next two books in what she affectionately calls the Triangular Trade Trilogy*.

If you’re new in the writing business, there’s hope. Janine loves hammering out the details and/or listening when things don’t work out. Whether it’s flash fiction, which she writes for Splickety Magazines, or romance novels, it’s a challenging business which has taken her over ten years to figure out, sort of.

Starving Hearts Book Blurb:

Since her assault, Miss Annette Chetwynd has been plagued by nightmares and worries about an arranged marriage. But she yearns to find her anonymous rescuer. Unfortunately, her health and intellect prevent it. Both repel suitors and cause Annette to doubt God’s existence, at least until He answers her prayers in an unusual way…

Mr. Peter Adsley is joining the clergy, and he desires a godly wife by his side. After a failed attempt to obtain one, he engages in a clandestine meeting with the bewitching young woman who keeps crossing his path. But she is so unsettling.

Destined for disappointments, Peter and Annette both endure disgraceful situations. Will Peter’s faith sustain him through overwhelming setbacks? Can Annette overcome her doubts? Or will their starving hearts yield to the machinations of a mad man?
